Added some non-js social share buttons

An update on a previous blog post I had written on non-JS social share buttons

I have blogged before about having social share buttons without JavaScript, I just wanted to do a quick followup post to show off three things.

The first is that I have implemented them on this site, you can go ahead and test them out by sharing any number of my articles.

The second is that I have added share buttons for both Reddit and Hacker News, I think these qualify as social networks and warranted the addition.

Finally, I have made a github repository called nojs-socialshare to share the code I used when creating these buttons, feel free to fork and add your own.
