Who does it?
Is it better that using Bridge, then selecting the photos you want?
I have been using bridge and found that I am not editing a lot of the photos that I am taking.

I use lightroom almost exclusively for my photos. I Import, cull, organize, and edit, all in lightroom.
I don't import directly into LR. I used to, from time to time, but quite often found it to be harder than it should be. The reason is that sometimes I have cards from two or three cameras that need to go into one folder (and sometimes more than one folder). I use LR's default folder naming, but append a description that describes the event or place. All this is hard to accomplish in LR.

I directly import in Lr. This way I can select the photos I want, tag them, rename them (usually with the date I took the photo), and apply a default preset of mine at once. It goes very smoothly this way, and by applying a preset of mine during import I sometimes just have to check exposure and that all, my photos are done.
I import via Lightroom now. It took me a year or two to figure it out, I had been copying the files via the OS and synchronizing my Lightroom view of my photos folder. That worked but I found that I had been missing a number of features available via Lightroom import like keyboarding, preset application, and others.
I import directly into LR from a card reader. I have set up the Import dialogue to apply different presets (I have one for Rugby, one for Street, one for Black and white) and also apply different default Keywords. It is also set to apply a colour label (Green) to all the RAW files as they are imported. Then if I later create a virtual copy I change the label on that to Yellow. If I create a TIFF and bring that back into LR it gets a blue label. I don't generally bother to bring JPEGs back into the catalog (I treat them as disposable files and just delete after posting to the web) but if I do they are red.
