Self publish or traditional? What to do?

Here’s a question I’ve been mulling over.

With it getting easier to put your work out into the world, is the traditional path to publishing becoming  extinct?

There are great arguments on both sides of the coin. Self-publishing gives the writer power– they are in charge of everything for better or worse. Sometimes, it’s worth a bit of money. With traditional publishing there are fewer fees and better editing but the path is a not for the faint of heart.

So what do I chose? I have no idea.

What do you guys think?  Which is the better path to take — self publishing or traditional publishing? Write your opinion in the comments below.
