As in your example, だの can often be used to list excuses. In such a case where you are half quoting someone, it would be the same as saying ~だとか.

When used to list examples, だの is similar to 「や・・や・・など。」 (= ... and... and.. and so on.)

To take another example from the dictionary:

彼女はピアノだのフルートだのを稽古(けいこ= practice/take lessons)している

I'm not a native speaker, but in this case (listing examples) I think it would be safe to say there is little or difference with:

彼女はピアノやフルートなどを稽古している

if in doubt, consult a Japanese - Japanese dictionary :)
