What do you mean that your authorship is broken? Keep in mind that Google is reducing the amount of author photos that show up in search results, particularly targeting people in the Realty industry.
@reedsync: Use Google's Structured Data Tool: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?q=michaelreedrealtor.com
You have verification issues and possible markup errors.
Thanks for the reply @songdogtech --- I used the tool but do not have the background to solve the issues.
Did you try following the instructions here?
You might try using this URL in the WP User Profile screen in the Google+ field instead:
One semi-unrelated suggestion: It's better to have a separate WP user that you post under, which has only the Author role, instead of posting under "admin" - it's considered a security risk (see here: http://esdev.net/wordpress-security-tip-dont-post-from-your-admin-account/ ). If you decide to set up a posting-only user account, then you can bulk-edit the existing posts to change their author user from the All Posts screen. Then you could tackle the Google+ authorship thing from that new user account.
