How much to bulk?

This may be a stupid question, im not sure so ill risk humiliation and ask!

How much do you bulk, do you decide on a weight you wish to achieve then bulk until you reach the weight whilst training throughtout for mass, then cut and see how much your net gain has been in terms of muscle gains

or

Bulk for a set period of time again training throughout, then cut again seeing how much you have gained in muscle gains.

Or a combination of both,

Dont get me wrong, im not asking how long, much i should bulk for so that i can be huge, so many stone etc, just interested to now what methods people use, im just starting out on my first bulk.

Cheers

    All people are different & have different goals but I personal bulk through the winter months when you don't mind being fatter because it keeps you warm & your not gonna have your top off. Then in spring start my cut ready for summer.

    I used to bulk until i hit a target weight, e.g. last serious bulk i did was after a long lay off and i went from 9 and ahalf to 12 stone, but now I'm going to go by the waistline i.e. don't let it get over 30" that way I can stay in condition and add mass.

    I just take enough surplus calories to enable me to gain. If i feel i'm losing weight too fast then i up the calories. If i feel i'm putting on too much fat then i lower them slightly. I'm not technical and don't go for counting all my calories. I'm not one for being a fat bastard nor one for having a year round six pack. When i want to cut, such as for my holidays in August then i'll cut for it then go back to my normal regime afterwards. It probably isn't the best way to go about it but it suits me.

    I do the same as above now after going for a target weight which made me end up with a waistline 4 inches bigger than normal and it took ages to shift!!

    No more than 2 inches on waist for me.

    Well this is my first bulk ever but so far its almost a year long

    im just over 4 stone up from my starting weight.

    I will stop when i feel too fat (quite soon i think) although that being said im not far of 90kg so i think il stop if i get there!

    Really i go by how i look and feel about myself.

    Having previously been very skinny i like feeling bigger even if there is some fat too. The ideal is lean and big though
