"Bloggers Aren't Competitors" - Would you Agree?

Source: Blica
Model-turned-stylist Hanneli Mustaparta was recently quoted saying "Bloggers aren't competitors in the way magazines are. We stick together." Anne Feldkamp didn't quite agree and put Hanneli's statement up for discussion. Personally, I find that (at least amongst most bloggers I know) a certain sense of community overlies competitiveness. Save a couple exceptions, mutual support has been the rule rather than envy and malevolence. Would you agree? Or would you think that team spirit in the blogosphere might be issue-driven, i.e. fashion bloggers compete over samples and clothes while political bloggers see themselves as different parts of one movement?
