StoryChief has been the greatest addition to my WordPress workflow in a long time. It saves a ton of time in distribution and this plugin makes connects it seamlessly with multiple wordpress sites. The testing option to save new posts as drafts instead of pushing live is great when your first connecting to a new site, so make sure you have it enabled. The support over there is also fantastic. Can't wait to see what they have coming next.

Very good plugin! Story Chief is a layer above my WordPress website. No more copy pasting from Word/Gdocs to WordPress. And my copywriters don't need to worry about settings or doing something wrong. They can even embed images, videos, tweets, Google Maps, etc. directly in the article.
