I built my personal site (it's still a WIP) to try out the WP + Gatsby stack quite a while ago. I've been working around WordPress for about 6 years now and this new approach was wonderful! I look forward to doing more projects (I have some interesting ideas!) and a blog series about it as well. Good luck with yours!
If anyone's considering deploying it to Netlify, I built Deploy with NetlifyPress, a very simple plugin that helps you set up automatic deployments directly from your WordPress dashboard.
