Did yo open up the answers there?  You first need a google plus page.  Then in option 1 go to https://plus.google.com/authorship and sign up for authorship.  Also in your blog posts make sure you have a clear by line  By Your Name.  Google will pick that up.

Then don't add the email address (What you actually put there is totally up to you).. That was only an example. You might want to have google reindex your site but it will probably pick up the new information by itself.

And maybe you can post a few of those Articles here too - being a good community member, I am sure our readers would enjoy ;)

But the experts above have pretty much posted all you need. Would just add one more point, make sure your "user name" and your site can be somehow recognized and linked. Highly recommend reading that authorship link...

Even if you dont do it exactly how Google wants, if you do go through the motions of always identifying the original Author, there will be that reference and link that is defensible.
