Title: Best sites for PB category explanation

Michelle and I have people asking for links to explain the different genres of a PB. What's your favorite? Any recommendations for me to give them?

Thanks!!

I can't find it now for the life of me, but Lane Fredrickson started a site that reviewed PBs. I thought it was a site other than her RhymeWeaver site, but now that's all I see---and my security won't let me enter that site anymore, so I can't tell if she expanded it, but I really think it was a separate one.

I third Pam's site.

Bumping this thread to see if anyone has any additional favorite sites. This seems to be the most common question during the few days leading up to PBParty submission window opening.

Thanks!
