Hi! I was facing the same dilemma recently. I also have the experience with React and I want to re-do my blog using Gastby or Next.
On my case, I was looking for a simple solution to my Blog. After trying out Gatsby and Next I was feeling:

  • Steep learning curve
  • Complex solutions for a simple problem
  • The generated HTML doesn't feel clean

So, I decided to go with Eleventy, a simpler static site generator. I shared the experience on my blog. Sorry to plug my own thing, but I think it will help you.
