    What exactly does this mean?

    “Now if you sign in to WordPress.com with Google, the articles you
    publish with that sign in will now be associated with your Google+
    profile automatically.”

    So if I use my personal Gmail account to login to my company’s WP site, it’ll automatically link the two?

    This is really interesting but can you explain what you mean by sign in to WordPress.com with Google? Are you talking about a Google browser or from gmail.

    When posting for a client and using their authorship do I need to open their gmail or google+ account first.

    Agreed. This needs clarification. Many sites run on WordPress.org self-hosted rather than using a WordPress.com account to login to your site.

    What a pain Google+ is!

    does it mean all of them who has Blogger’s blog are directly eligible for authorship?

    This is not a big surprise. Google is putting yet more weight behind Google+. They are also making sure authorship is adopted much more widely. If all you have to do (while signed in with Google) is publish your posts as you have always done and you automatically get authorship, then can it get easier? We will have to see how it works out.

    That was just what I was thinking. We use a different hosting company for our WordPress blog so does this change work in our favor or not? Would I have to just update my login information to be the gmail account tied to my Google+ profile?
