I do the same. Shaking up and down would cake the grinds to the lid sometimes and make things a bit messy.
I also prefer the regular blind tumbler instead of the shaker due to the difference in the exit diameter for the grinds. The smaller hole of the tumbler distributes the coffee in a tighter mound in the center of the basket. With the shaker. The edges of the mound were a bit too close to the edge of the basket and the would sometimes collapse and spill over the edge.
