Each year I back up the current year's photos to CD/DVD and take a copy offsite. I test the backups annually as well. I back up current year photos to Mozy.
I use picasa with this method. I find that the face recognition and tagging features really helps me sort out my photos. Most of my photography falls under the Family and Frienship area of focus.
I also use 3rd party backups. Google and Amazon have 5 gig free storage. but there are paid ones that give you much more.
