I went public skating with this girl I like who I've known for about a month, but I didn't hold her hand or do anything really. I'm pretty shy with this kinda thing, so is it a bad idea to tell a girl you like her over text? what about something like "hey, do you want to hang out again, only this time as a date?" good idea/bad idea/other suggestions?

It's generally a bad idea to text that you like someone. But you are on the money with thinking about asking her out on a date (and letting her know explicitly you are looking at it as a date). This shows confidence, and moves things forward in the direction you want. In contrast, telling her you like her could make her think you are insecure, coming on too strong, etc.
With that mind, I also will recommend you call her up. Texting doesn't lead to dating very often. You want to be a man and call. Say something like "Hey, I had fun hanging out with you the other day (let her respond)." Then say "Would you be interested in getting together again?" And there you go.
Keep in mind, if she doesn't pick up, you don't want to leave this as a message on her machine. Just say something like "Hey, it's (your name). We met at (____). I wanted to call and say hi and I look forward to talking with you soon."
