3. Yes!

The tremendous effort (usually futile) of attempting to find an agent or publisher, IMO, is better spent on actual writing. I must say, though, that there's something thrilling about holding an actual book, with your name as author, in your hand. So I go the self-publishing route (not ebook) and order a few copies to give away or sell at cost, and to proudly put one on my bookshelf.
