POLL: More Meta for Chris: Posting to MyDD or Kos (or elsewhere)

MyDD was the first political blog I encountered. I moved on to Daily Kos when MyDD went quiet during 2003 while Jerome Armstrong went to work for Howard Dean. In fact, I think I may have stumbled onto MyDD while looking for Dean information.
Since then, I've been conflicted about where to post things. I have my own blog of course (which almost no one reads). I sometimes cross-post things here or to DailyKos. Sometimes, I post there, but not to my own blog. So, what should I post where?
In my mind, I've separated MyDD to a more intellectual place and DailyKos to a more emotional place. I sometimes wonder what particular piece fits where. My own interests lie toward posts on religion and politics using public opinion data or posts that interpret situations through an unstated postmodern lens that tries to understand why people disagree. (Suffice it to say that I think that people who are wrong are much more rational than the average Kossack gives them credit for and people who are right are sometimes less rational than believed.) My focus is less often on particular elections or campaigns unless I think I see a lot of skewed diaries in the wrong direction.
I notice that some people cross-post things on here to dKos (or maybe they are primarily Kossacks cross-posting here). I'm wondering how people decide what they post where. I am making a poll. Please vote or tell me in the comments how badly I made a poll that doesn't have an option covering you. For those of you who sometimes post different things to MyDD or Daily Kos (or other similar sites), what criteria do you use for where you post on a given topic?
