One thing about going to big labels is that they will own the rights to your music when you sign their contracts. You won't own the music any more. In other words, a big label can take your song, make it how they want it by giving it to some producer that works for them and put it out to the public their way. You will get very little recognition for your hard work. Independent labels may work with you a bit more because some of them are more about the art than the money. If you do it yourself, you will own all the rights to your music, just as you do now.

I'm not saying that any way to get your music out there is bad. It all just depends on what you want to do. If you want to have a paying career writing music, the big labels are the way to go. Just make sure you read the contract.
